articles of the peace


articles of the peace
In English law, a complaint made or exhibited to a court by a person who makes oath that he is in fear of death or bodily harm from some one who has threatened or attempted to do him injury. The court may thereupon order the person complained of to find sureties for the peace, and, in default, may commit him to prison. This is known as "being bound over to keep the peace". Such articles were formerly issued in the High Court; but since 1938 the procedure has only been available in courts of summary jurisdiction. Now covered by Magistrates' Courts Act, 1980, No.No. 115, 116
